The City is Ours Open Paper dives deeper into narrative strategies to further develop a true sense of participation by a wider range of society in relation to themes like gentrification, touristification, housing, public space, identity and memory. In order to reflect on these topics in a meaningful way, we rely on the potential of peer-to-peer learning spaces with cross-sectoral approaches. We also rely on the capacity of playful transformation as a tool for challenging the limits of our cities. Some of the tools that you will find in this paper were developed within the context of Seville’s own struggles, but all of them can serve as both an inspiration and a replicable tool for use in other contexts. Feel free to use, modify or remix them as fits your needs.
